Fowler at Fifty

The Fowler Museum at UCLA will honor its 50th anniversary with a suite of special exhibitions and programs from fall 2013–fall 2014. The exhibitions in the fall of 2013 will fill the Fowler's Getty Trust and Lucas Family galleries with nearly 1,000 objects from the Fowler’s vast, acclaimed, and diverse permanent collections. The installations will honor traditional cultures from South Africa, New Zealand, Peru, Mexico, and elsewhere.
